You will feel immersed in the spirit of the sea in this 4-bedroom, 3-bath home, just one block to the quaint downtown of Pacific Grove and 2 blocks from the beautiful coastline of Monterey Bay. There is no end to the fun a group can have in this spacious house that can sleep up to 9 adults and 2 kids - the perfect place for a family reunion or for couples vacationing together.
With its historic architecture, deep ocean-blue exterior and white picket fence, this home has an upscale Cape Cod sensibility enlivened by coastal California flair. The house is all about the seashore, with a palette and decor inspired by the beach. It has been completely renovated, retaining the best of the old while updating it for contemporary tastes.
The front door opens to a sunny enclosed porch that leads to the living room with a sage-green leather sofa, whitewashed wood and marble coffee and end tables and marine art. The adjacent dining room features a fireplace that can be lit with candles for atmosphere, a wooden buffet with marble top, a Colonial pewter chandelier and a driftwood farmhouse table with benches that seat up to 10.
A remodeled kitchen has everything you need to prepare gourmet meals, including a stainless steel gas range and oven, large refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen looks out to a family room where everyone will undoubtedly want to gather for fun and games furnished with a white slip-covered sofa, a rattan table and chairs that can seat up to 6, occasional chairs, a coffee table and a 55” TV.
Around the corner, at the base of a staircase that leads to the second story, is a nook with a wrought-iron day bed that can sleep 1.
A panoramic vista over rooftops to the deep blue waters of the bay awaits those who stay in the second-floor master bedroom with its king bed, which can be made into 2 twins, with luxury linens and a quilted coverlet with a starfish, seashell and coral motif. Make yourself comfortable at the small table and chairs and gaze out at the bay as you sip your morning coffee or tea. Other amenities include off-white end tables with blue ceramic lamps, a dresser, a double closet and a flat screen TV. The master bath, with its white walls and mocha-colored tiles, has a tub with shower.
A second master bedroom on the main floor, with white bead-board wainscoting and sunny yellow walls, has antiqued cabinets as end tables, starfish lamps, a wicker chair, a flat-screen TV, a marble-topped dresser and king bed with a blue and turquoise floral quilted coverlet and luxury linen. A wrought-iron trundle can become two twins for children. A glass door leads to an enclosed deck with a table and chairs and a grill. A pristine bathroom with white bead-board walls and a new free-standing sink with wooden cabinet, has a tub/shower.
A third smaller bedroom has a quilted blue-gray and white coverlet and luxury linens on a king bed. Nearby is a full bathroom and a laundry room with a farmhouse sink and cabinet and a washer/dryer.
A circular staircase off the family room leads downstairs to another bedroom with a king bed that can be made into 2 twins with a soft celadon and yellow paisley quilted coverlet, distressed wood end tables and carved wooden pelican lamps.
This spectacular house is located just a block above the commercial district so you'll be able to walk to the many unique shops and restaurants that make Pacific Grove a sought-after destination. Two blocks from recreational trail that extends for miles along the shoreline and a 20 minute stroll to the aquarium.
